Khatwet Serena - Online & Staging Workshop then perform in the Festival Show

Saturday 12m-2pm

Participate in the 2024 Festival Online - even if you are unable to join us in Christchurch in April!

Jenny has prepared this Online Course especially for the MEDANZ Festival 2024 - you will have online access to this recorded choreography through to the end of May.

This choreography to Hossam Ramzy's Khatwet Serena, is based on Hadia's own choreography, and is a homage by Jenny to her oriental dance mentor who passed away in 2022.

The choreography itself is a fast paced drum piece with lots of interesting accents and precise technique. 

If you are a Festial Fundraising Pass holder, after purchasing this ticket you may participate in the Staging/Revision Workshop at the Festival in Christchurch on 27 April at 12 noon, with the opportunity to perform in the Festival Show.

This Online workshop ticket is non-transferrable and non-refundable.

I teach weekly West African inspired dance classes in Newtown, Wellington on Mon/Thurs eves and Dun Dun dance classes (challenge your musical and physical fitness drumming as you dance) on Tuesdays.

Bellydance is my personal salve in between the Afro dance where I get to internalise and go deep, move more slowly and intentionally and feel things. For me it is a healing movement.

My aim as a teacher is to create a feeling of freedom and flow, build up good energy and have fun. To create space for self expression. For students to listen to their bodies and move in a way that's right for them. My classes are inclusive of all different levels, body types and abilities.

As a percussionist with a passion for the interaction of rhythm and movement, I am a big fan of the drum solo and any juicy choreography with an emphasis on musicality.

I have completed 3 levels of Hadia's teacher training which has a big focus on anatomy, ways of communicating movement, and refinement of Egyptian/Oriental dance technique with her signature style of natural organic movement. I am also a Dance Movement Therapist (DTAA Prov. Prof), a certified Bana Kuma Dance Instructor, a 350 hr qualified Dru Yoga Teacher and a Life Coach. I work with groups and individuals to experience more joy, ease and flow in their lives.
